He says surgery for 2 strictures. My GI only told me about
1 of them
. He will remove 1 and either remove or perform a strictureplasty on the other. He will try to do it laporoscopically, but if there are adhesions he will
open me up.
Turns out that the chief of surgery over him was my original surgeon 23yrs ago! He said I've done extremely well being able to hold out for 23 yrs. Said 60% need to have another resection after 10 yrs. So, I guess it's time.
I've known it was coming, but I am so sick of being on the operating table. I know, it's all part of CD.
No date yet. Waiting for the phone call. I'll let you know!
